The FB interface is decidedly convoluted. Reminds me of another interface that's been a pain in my backside - Google's.
For Facebook, I have to think it's intentional. They may have taken their cue from grocery stores. Put the stuff you want people to grab, (high profit items), at easy to reach level, put the lower profit items either way up high, way down low, or in blind spots in the store's shopping traffic pattern and of course place the overpriced single-serve candy bars next to the slow moving checkout lines.
For Google, I think they have grown too big with too many specialized groups working on the various parts and not communicating internally... kind of like "The Blind Men and the Elephant"...
